Crime Update Thursday 13th April 2017 - April

Alert message sent 13/04/2017 09:50:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

This message is dated Thursday 13th April 2017 for Ascot.
Just a last minute crime update before the long Easter break.
If you are going away, remember to prepare your home.  Lights and talk radio stations on timers please – a fake TV left on, in an upstairs front facing bedroom !!
Make sure doors are locked - no keys left in them.  NO keys, in a key box on the wall – particularly labelled neighbours’ house keys !!!  If you have a glass lower panel in your front door, put something over it, so that an opportunist thief cannot see post piling up !!
Ask a neighbour to move cars and park on your driveway occasionally.
SET the alarm as you go.
If an Opportunist thief does break in, they will only be in your home for a max of 5 minutes, hence the fast and untidy search – make sure valuables, particularly jewellery is hidden somewhere it will take more than 5 minutes for me to find.  That is not between towels in an airing cupboard, in the fridge or freezer, not in a tin in your kitchen cupboards !
Have a good weekend break
It is believed a skimming device was placed on an ATM cash till in Windsor Town centre.  Not confirmed as yet.  Please be especially careful if you use an ATM in the street, to check it carefully before you insert your card.  We have not had a skimming device for several years, better to get cash back from a supermarket when you buy your shopping.

12/4  Wednesday 7 p.m. / 11 p.m.  Lady Margaret Road.  Burglary.  Entry via forced front door.  Alarm boxes and keypad inside smashed off the wall, untidy search of the whole house.  Jewellery boxes emptied and strewn across the bed.  Kitchen cupboards emptied out.  As I keep saying, no-one expects to be burgled and it is never going to be you – but – sometimes it is, absolutely randomly, so everyone must be prepared.  NO VALUABLE JEWELLERY IN THEIR BOXES (possibly with valuations / receipts) on the dressing table or in bedside cabinets.  Valuable watches particularly are virtually impossible to sell, without the original box, manual, guarantee and receipt !  SO – they must never be stored together, particularly in bedside cabinets !  Just take a few moments to protect your property.
12/4  Wednesday 5 p.m.  Church, Church Road.  Lead stolen from the roof.  Not yet known how much or when.  If you live near a church, village hall, community building, which may have lead on the roof or visible lead flashing, can you keep an eye out for suspicious people hanging around looking at roofs or even climbing up on roofs !!
13/4  Thursday midnight / 6 a.m.  Woodlands RideCAR LEFT UNLOCKED ON THE DRIVEWAY – very valuable set of golf clubs stolen.  The owner came down and found the driver’s door left ajar.  The first question your Insurance company asks – ‘Was the entry forced, what was the damage’ ?  Imagine what the Insurance companies response will be if you say ‘No damage’ ??????
